The Man from Nowhere is the fifteenth episode of the classic ITC British TV Series, Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) starring Mike Pratt, Kenneth Cope and Annette Andre. The episode was first broadcast on 28 December 1969 on ITV and was Directed by Robert Tronson.
A man enters Jeannie's life pretending that he is Marty returned from the dead. As he gradually builds Jeannie's trust with his alarming knowledge of Marty's life, Jeff, suspicious from the beginning (with Marty familiar with the man but unable to recall) finds that he is a runaway member of a gang and has taken Jeannie to the Cotswolds where she and Marty had their honeymoon. Seeming very inquisitive about recalling the details of where they had an accident it turns out the Marty imposter had stashed away a hoard of stolen silver years and years ago and that he was the other driver of the car where they had the accident after he had done it. He turns out that he was misleading Jeannie all along just to help locate his treasure, leaving Jeannie confused as to why he didn't just ask her in two seconds flat.
